Come enjoy the night sky, watch for shooting stars and learn a new creative skill.

    SEPTEMBER 22nd:

    Purposeful Memoir as a Path to a Thriving Future: 

    A writing workshop led by Jennifer Browdy, PhD

     
    Browdy 

    This workshop will open up new pathways into your past while encouraging you to think more deeply about your present, and envision the thriving future you want to live into and co-create with others.

    Following Jennifer's elemental journey framework, we’ll use the four elements–Earth, Water, Fire and Air—as potent metaphors for different stages and aspects of our life experiences.

    As we align our personal histories with the larger narratives of our time and place, we intentionally awaken and deepen our capacity for spiritually grounded activism and conscious leadership in our own lives and in our communities, including the larger Earth community of which we are all a part.

    Suitable for all ages; and for anyone who is interested in using personal writing as a contemplative practice, as well as those actively embarked on a memoir project.

     

    Jennifer Browdy, PhD teaches literature and communications at Bard College at Simon’s Rock in Great Barrington MA. She coined the term “purposeful memoir” in her award-winning writer’s guide, The Elemental Journey of Purposeful Memoir: A Writer’s Companion (2017 Nautilus Silver Award). Her memoir, What I Forgot ...And Why I Remembered, was one of six memoir finalists for the 2018 International Book Awards. The editor of three anthologies of global women’s writing and the online magazine Fired Up! Creative Expression for Challenging Times, she offers workshops in purposeful memoir along with coaching, manuscript review and publishing services at Green Fire Press.
